i need you to look at your rats' hands...
i mean really really look at them.
do your rats have just a thumb nubbin or do they have a thumbnail?
i would have sworn that rats had just nubbins, but the boy i took care of last weekend, kai, has thumbnails, and i can't get my girls to stay still long enough to check their hands.
if there are only some who have nails, then we are safe for the time being, but it is only a matter of time before the world will be lost to the rattie uprising. once they have full thumbs, we won't be able to keep them locked up. our good linens will be the first victims. or perhaps they will learn to how to use our computers and our credit card bills will skyrocket with yogie purchases.
